After Charlestown pulled off one of the more notable tournament upsets from the first round over Brownstown Central, many thought the Pirates would give host Lawrenceburg a battle in the semifinals of Sectional 31 Friday.  However, after a 14-6 first quarter, the Tigers scored 35 unanswered points and ran away to a 49-18 victory.

Lawrenceburg had over 500 yards of offense, 85 of which came on the club’s first touchdown as Adam Burd rumbled down the Neary Field turf.  Avery Seig kicked the extra point (7/7 XPs Friday) and it was 7-0 Tigers.

LHS quarterback Garrett Yoon later scored on an 18-yard run, but Charlestown’s Andrew Snyder punched in from a yard out (kick failed) to make it 14-6 Tigers after the first quarter.

The only score of period two was another big play for Lawrenceburg.  Garrett Yoon and brother Gavin Yoon combined for a 76-yard touchdown pass.  It was 21-6 hosts at the half.

Lawrenceburg put the game away in the third stanza with 21 more points.  Burd scored on a five-yard run then Mason Kennedy tallied a pair of six-yard TD trots.  It was 42-6 with a quarter to play.

Garrett Yoon completed his second touchdown pass of the night in the fourth, this one was an eight-yard play to Dakota Roth to make it 49-6.

The Pirates scored twice after the game was well in hand at Dick Meador Stadium.  Addison Logsdon had a 13-yard run while Marion Lukes recorded a stellar 70-yard pick six.  Both two-point tries were unsuccessful.  Lawrenceburg improved to 10-1 with a 49-18 victory over Charlestown (8-3).

For LHS, Garrett Yoon was 13 for 17 passing for 242 yards and two touchdowns.  He added a rushing score on five lugs for 37 yards.  Gavin Yoon recorded one touchdown reception among his four catches for 136 yards. Roth carded the other TD haul with two grabs on the night for 35 yards.  Burd ran for 189 yards on 17 carries and two scores while Kennedy found the end zone twice on seven totes for 38 yards.

For Charlestown, Logsdon had 11 carries for 86 yards and a score.  Snider booked the other rushing TD on 11 runs for 29 yards.  The Tiger defense limited Snider in passing to only four completions on 19 attempts for 36 yards. All four receptions were made by Braiden Murphy.

Murphy and Lukes both picked off a Tiger pass while Andrew Roth recovered a Pirate fumble.

Robert Braunecker led CHS in tackle points with 18 on eight solo stops and two assists.  He also had two tackles for a loss.  Deke Brown had 11 TPs (4 & 3) while Snider posted 10 (4 & 2).  Ethan Parris posted 11 tackle points for the Tigers with five solo tackles and one assist.  He also had a TFL and a sack.  Brayden York also had a stop behind the line of scrimmage and a sack.

Coach Ryan Knigga’s Tigers will travel to Greensburg for a second time this season and play another Pirate team in consecutive weeks.  Greensburg’s Buccaneers (7-4) coached by Scott Moore were 36-12 winners at Batesville in their sectional semifinal.  LHS was a 49-17 winner at Shriver Field during Week 4, a score atypical of the traditionally close EIAC-3A rivalry.
